Life Changes

Well, I'll be married in 3 days.

I don't want to turn into the "always the guy talking about his marriage" guy, but it is a huuuuuge deal.

My best friends are all coming to town (except the Caldwell's, for acceptable reasons: childbearing) and I'm very excited to have everyone here. My parents get to see our new church, which I'm also excited about, and I'm going to two Cardinal games.

So, more later!

PTI Nerd

Yes, that is an autographed pic of Tony and Mike. You can now follow along with my favorite show, Pardon the Interruption on the left. Just click on ESPN: PTI to hear the podcast. This is in addition to the video link, also on the left. The show just doesn't get old!

On a sports side note, I don't know if I can take another Boston team winning a championship.

Burrito Bliss

I have taught them well.

Single digits....

I will be married in 9 days. (You're right Mr. Caldwell, no comparison to having a child) Lots of people are asking me if I'm nervous. Not so much nervous to be married, but rather that the 230923 things that need to get done actually are executed. They said it would never happen: I have beat the odds, I have overcome adversity, I'm livin the dream baby!!!

Check out the new blog log feature that blogger added, very niiice! (Is it sad that I still do the Borat voice like, multiple times a day?) Now you can see who's updated their posts in a while and who has not so you don't even have to waste your time! (*cough* Kelly *cough*)

Also, if you frequent Internationally Known on the Microphone and are yourself a blogger, please let me know and I'll give you some love there on the left.

Today Sarah and I are getting our marriage license and running various errands, so hopefully I won't have any blog material from the "St. Louis County Recorder of Deeds". What a crock. I feel like a lot of this stuff is left over from feudalistic dark age Europe.

Last thing, feel free to celebrate my betrothel by clicking on the sesame street image, printing it off, and enjoy a coloring session.

New Links

Firefox 3 will be coming up soon, and you can help set a world record!

Also my friend Jessica started a blog. She is going to New Orleans for two years as a part of Teach for America, plenty of good material there!

Remarkable Quote

"If you want to build a ship, don't summon people to buy wood, prepare tools, distribute jobs and organize the work; teach people the yearning for the wide, boundless ocean."

Eating my words?

So you can find the audio for "The Cost of Community" here for the next couple weeks. It was pointed out to me that I bagged on cell phones eroding at community (if you're on them all the time when you're around people....guilty!) yet I openly covet an iPhone.

Accountability is lame.

Out this week

Hello friends.

I will be on tour with our high school youth choir this week, so blog productivity should dip drastically!

So I leave you with this:

"The centrality of Christ to all of history and to the meaning of human existence invites us into Jesus Christ, through whom we read the entire Bible from beginning to end. As pastors of the Word, there is a strong need to soak ourselves in the Triune story of God with its detailed exposition of the central role of Christ in the greatest drama of human history- the drama of God who becomes one of us to rescue the world. This theme of God's rescue of us all- not inspirational topics, motivational speakers, or massive therapy sermons- needs to be recovered as the central message of our church. This is not only the apostles way of reading and preaching the scripture, it is also the way of the ancient fathers and, for the most part, the churches that do an ancient-future worship"

-Robert E. Webber, "Ancient Future Worship", pg. 121

Another Mustoe beard salute: Kimbo Slice

Folks, this is a tough man with an even badder beard. Goodness, look at that thing, it's like a bee's nest. I'll bet it actually helps deflects punches. So here's to to you Kimbo: you're not only taking mixed martial arts to network television, you're carrying the banner for bearded men everywhere.
